Miles looking to juco OL Mack

One of the toughest positions for incoming freshmen to make an immediate impact at is on the offensive line so Les Miles is looking to the junior college ranks to help shore up his front.

Cedric Mack is a 6-4, 330 offensive guard that was voted to the all-conference team last year at El Camino Community College out in California. He started all 14 games and recorded more than 60 pancake blocks.

"I just dominate defensive lineman," said the confident Mack. "In every aspect, be it run block, pass block or a double team. I'm just a dominator."

Mack has received seven offers so far from Arizona, Oregon State, Florida International, South Florida, Ole Miss, Kentucky and Oklahoma, but said that if he got one from LSU they'd be his top school.

"If I get an offer from LSU, they'll be my number one school," he told Tiger Rag. "I grew up loving LSU. Before our games, we'd watch LSU highlights to get motivated for the game."

Mack said he has been talking with LSU wide receivers coach D.J. McCarthy and that a scholarship offer could only be a few weeks away.

"He came and saw me practice the other day," said Mack. "I didn't get to talk with him much, but he said he'd be in touch. He said he's waiting to give an offer after my grades come out this semester. Right now I have all As and Bs. My GPA is a 2.0, but it's going to sky rocket after this semester."

Mack, who is originally from Miami Palmetto (Fla.) said that LSU is at the top of his list for a number of reasons.

"I love everything about LSU," said Mack. "They have great facilities, a great coaching staff and it's a great environment. I love Baton Rouge, too."

Mack said he hopes to prove his skills at an upcoming junior college combine that should help raise his stock.

"It's not this Saturday, but the next," said Mack. "I think this will give me an opportunity to prove that I am the best guard out there. I plan to be the number one offensive lineman, period. I've got to be the best at everything I do."
